I just thought of this, what if your mask was clear? You could make the whole thing out of the stuff the lens is made of. It'd be kinda cool to able to see other peoples faces. And if you're looking for something different this would work.
If it moves SHOOT IT. if you're somewhat sure he's not a ref SHOOT HIM. If he's on your own team and you're bored SHOOT AWAY!

It would break.
Don't make fun of my marker! It works better than yours, and I won't have to get a second job to buy a new one if it breaks.

Put this in your sig if you spent $2000 fireproofing a closet for your gear so you can just get out the house in a fire.

no you could make clear flexible plastic exactly like what masks are made out of now you dont need the lens material.

They have already made them...Jt and Scott both have clear masks...it just looks like a blurry color of what their face looks like.

To make a translucent one it would be so hard that getting shot would hurt alot or break the mask.

Peace,

I ordered the clear axiom, but was sent the black and grey one. :wacko: Still not happy bout that. Took 5 weeks to ship, didn't want to bother trying to return it.

Well the plastic could be flexible, not exactly the same as the lens, looks like this is not a new idea though

i know that when i play woodsball lens flair is a dead give away for a target. and having an all plastic one/clear would lens flair like crazy.

Maybe it'd be a good idea for those crazy speedballers, they like to look flashy don't they? (I'm assuming no one here is a speedballer, if I'm wrong, let me just say I've met speedballers before that I liked way more then some woodsballers I met)

*ahem* :happy:

I think it would be cool if it was made of the lens material, if it would work. I never liked those JT ones.

the riot mask is cool, but i don't think many fields would let you wear that instead of a regular mask. the fact that the shield can flip up would be a bit of a deterrent. nonetheless, it'd be sweet.
